Book Launch: Weike Wang presents Chemistry
In conversation with Jennifer Kurdyla
Wine reception to follow

Greenlight is thrilled to launch the debut novel from a brilliant new literary voice, which astutely juxtaposes the elegance of science, the anxieties of finding a place in the world, and the sacrifices made for love and family. Weike Wang’s Chemistry is about a young female scientist who must recalibrate her life when her academic career goes off track. The book is a luminous investigation of the pressures of immigrant parents, the perils of academia, and the mysterious science of the heart. Chemistry has been named one of the most anticipated novels of the year by The Millions, Entertainment Weekly, and Bustle, and has received praise from Ann Patchett, Amy Hempel, and Peter Ho Davies, who writes, “Chemistry (appropriately enough) explodes the stereotype of the model minority. Wang’s voice is a revelation.” Wang is joined in conversation with her editor at Knopf, Jennifer Kurdyla. A wine reception follows to celebrate the launch.
